Close to the Shepherd

"Behold I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves; be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."     - Matthew 10:23

As I mentioned in my Bio I am a small town girl, my high school had things like "Drive your tractor to school day" and "Donkey Basketball" (oh yeah girl - you had to RIDE a donkey up and down the court, it was a hoot...) are you seeing the mental picture? This small town upbringing meant that I was full force involved in FFA and 4H groups throughout all my schooling years. Even before I could technically show at the fair, I was in clover bud shows with my older sister's fair projects. The livestock that seemed to be our specialty was sheep. I can't seem to remember a spring growing up where I wasn't reading books to the sheep  in the barn just to try and convince them to like me.

As I grew in the Lord and spent more time in His word I noticed the correlation between sheep and His church. This makes me giggle to think about because if I learned one thing showing sheep it is this - Sheep are stupid. Okay, Okay, maybe that wasn't the most eloquent way to word it, but it is the honest truth. They are skittish, fearful, flighty and followers. o u c
